About Piegan Land Port of Entry
The Piegan Land Port of Entry is located 10 miles north of Babb Montana on US Route 89. Piegan is in a remote area and distances from the site to nearby towns/cities with adequate supplies, equipment and amenities are long. The weather can be severe and change rapidly and the work on the bank of the St Mary River is only accessible over a two-mile long four-wheel drive road and may be impassable during certain times of the year. Access to temporary housing for workers within a reasonable distance to the site is difficult to obtain and many of the nearby lodging options may be closed during the winter months.
GSA Regional Administrator Susan Damour comments:
“We are pleased that GSA can bring together multiple businesses throughout the region to consider bidding on this design-build contract. Events like this help stimulate the economy by promoting new construction and increasing employment, while providing needed services at the Piegan Land Port of Entry.”
